CARTERVILLE – Zach Carpenter has resigned his position as assistant basketball coach at John A. Logan to become an assistant at Indian Hills Community College in Iowa.

“We were very fortunate to have Zach on our staff for as long as we did,” said Logan head coach Kyle Smithpeters. “He was a very positive influence not only on our players and teams but on everyone at John A. Logan.  We are sorry to have him leave, but we understand and are excited about his desire to transition into another program.  We wish him well.”

Carpenter was at Logan for six years, one year under Mark Imhoff and five working with Smithpeters.  While Carpenter served as an assistant the Vols had a record of 132-60. He started his new job at Indian Hills on July 24.

Indian Hills was 29-5 last season and advanced to the NJCAA national tournament.

“With school opening in just a few weeks, we want to fill the vacancy as soon as possible,” Smithpeters said.  “I have been pleasantly surprised by the number and quality of coaches interested in the job.”
